Les Miserables

Eaten my dinner early and now I'm waiting for mi sleeping time. Have I told you if I've read this amazing story: Les Miserables? I look forward to seeing its musical both boradcasted or even live. Fascinating story I've ever read (one of them). According to Wikipedia,
The novel contains many plots, but the main thread is the story of ex-convict, Jean Valjean (known by his prison number, 24601), who becomes a force for good in the world, but cannot escape his dark past. The novel is divided into five volumes, each volume divided into books, and subdivided into chapters (for a total of three hundred sixty-five chapters). Each chapter is relatively short, usually no longer than a few pages. Nevertheless, the novel as a whole is quite lengthy by modern standards, exceeding fourteen hundred pages in unabridged editions (1900 pages in French).

It also contains what has been incorrectly claimed to be the longest sentence in a published novel.[3] Within the borders of the novel's story, Hugo fills many pages with his thoughts on religion, politics, and society, including several lengthy digressions, one being a discussion on enclosed religious orders, one on the construction of the Paris sewers, another being on argot, and most famously, his retelling of the Battle of Waterloo.

Get it? I tweeted about this the moment I read the last full stop. It amazed me a lot. Just in case I forgot about this book, I might have to reread it again someday. It's funny though how I tend to reread books I've read before and enjoy its story still.


P/s: "2:05am of 27 june 2012 finished reading les miserables... A VERY GREAT STORY! LOVE IT FOR 5 STARS!"


And BTW called home last night and talked with my mom for hours. It's not comfortable recalling back my previous shitty holidays. Ugh! that was the most unhealthy thing to do and I shall never repeat the mistakes (I think I've said this before).
